What should I expect during a brain MRI?

What should I expect during a brain MRI? A brain MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a painless and noninvasive medical test that produces detailed images of the brain and surrounding structures. Here’s what you can expect during the procedure:

You will be asked to remove any metallic objects that you are wearing, such as jewelry, watches, or hair clips.

You will be asked to lie down on a table that is part of the MRI machine. The table will move into the MRI machine, which is a large, tube-shaped machine.

You will be given headphones or earplugs to wear to help reduce the loud noises that the MRI machine makes during the scan.

You may be given an injection of contrast material, which helps to highlight certain structures in the brain and improve the accuracy of the images.

During the scan, the MRI machine will produce loud noises, but you will be able to communicate with the technologist through a microphone. It is important to lie still and follow the technologist’s instructions during the scan.

The scan usually takes 30-60 minutes.

After the scan, you will be able to resume your normal activities.

It is important to inform the technologist or your doctor if you have any metallic implants or if you are pregnant, as the MRI may not be safe in these cases.
